I'll do it today.

To slow up the movement, you need to set the delay in each frame to more
than the default. To make each new frame hide the preceding one, you
need to set it in (replace) mode. Thus the name of a given frame would

frame#xx (replace) (200ms)

for example. Then the train would simply move on the Web page. To stop
it at the end, you need to replace the image itself by another one, or
at least put a very very long delay in the last frame, say 100000ms.

However, when you will use GAP's Move Path tool, it will be much easier,
and above all you will be able to have a stable landscape behind the
train, without being obliged to copy and merge the corresponding layer
with all frames of the animation.
