Well, the accelerating is easy: just throw the knob to 100 (percent) and just leave it there. The train will go on endlessly, but I've been told it faults after ten laps or so. The recommended is 3 laps, though. The tricky part is the braking: you have to start gradually slowing the train down during the last lap and slowly make it crawl the last parts to the station. When you finally want to stop the train, you have to be careful about the position: there are markings in the first car and in the platform. If they don't align within 1 meter, the lapbars won't open.
It's the braking that makes this fun to operate and it can't be learned any other way than just through trial and error. It took me a few hours to finally be able to breathe and brake at the same time.
