TV signal disruption by trains - how to fix?

So I've finally moved to Forest Hill after many months of trying (wahey). My shiny new TV arrived yesterday - at which point I discovered the downside to my lovely (rented) flat on Devonshire Road, where the living room overlooks the train line. Most times a train goes by, I lose my TV signal...

It's got built-in Freeview, so although I discovered upon moving in that the flat is 'plumbed' for Sky I'd really rather not subscribe to that unless that's the only way. Does anyone else get this problem, and if so are there other fixes, e.g. an internal booster or something you can recommend? As I say, I'm renting so can't start crawling over the roof to install additional external aerials etc.

Would love to know how others have dealt with this - if it has to be a Sky subscription, so be it, but *sigh*. (Not least because in an attempt to be efficient I'd sorted my phone and broadband with other suppliers before moving in - if only I'd known I'd have just got everything from Sky. Never mind, eh?)
