What about vibration? There is big difference if there is one train in one hour and one train every 10 minutes.
During the day there aren't many trains, but during the night time it get's more busy. A train every 30 minutes or so. The vibrations of freight trains are bigger than from passenger trains or trams, but in the commieblocks (suprisngly!) it's also hardly noticeable. It's a diffrent story if you're outside tho.

Not impossible – just difficult. And in my opinion, not worth it in the case of Rīga. They are more for cities with badly accessible railway stations – ones that are terminus stations and/or far from the city center. (And yes, I am not only referencing Karlsruhe, Kassel and the Hague, but also hinting to Tallinn)

Since cities have congestion but railway operations are made according to a strict schedule, tram-trains must have some 5 minutes of extra time at the tram–>railway transition point. This means that a tram-train from Rīga city center would not only go on the slow tram line number 2 across some pointless rivers (Daugava) and fields (Uzvaras parks) farther away from Torņakalns LU center and future multi-modal station, but also should have some 5 minutes of waiting at Tapešu iela just because on some days congestion might be worse. Plus, if an accident happens somewhere on the city street, the whole service might be blocked.
