The process is pretty simple once it's setup as you can only do one of three things each round; pick up train cards, pick up destination cards, put down trains onto the board. Read through the rules more than once because sometimes it might take a few goes for the penny to drop.
i think the trick is to get tickets that have places in common which may give you the continuous train length bonus (or is that bonus only in the xbox version?)

extra 10 points for longest track. and yes, you want to get as many routes as you can going through as few cities as possible.

OK.

if a track has two colours (eg. orange and black) and i claim the black track, can the orange track still be claimed or is that option gone because i claimed it first?

EDIT: was the case with the online version but not on the xbox 360 version.

If you have two routes, then two people can each claim a route.

i was told that (over at the DOW T2R forums):

if there's 2-3 people playing = cannot claim the 2nd track colour
if there's 4-5 people playing = can claim the 2nd track colour

anyone like to confirm that?

And there's also 15 points for the person(s) with the most destinations achieved.

As othy said, correct. Also take note that one player may only claim one leg as to not have a monopoly and block others.

And that brings up another topic... blocking...

Well, blocking happens as it's a part of the game but the point of contention is whether it's done to reach your destinations or it's done to stop your opponents. Realistically it's a valid strategy however it's not in the spirit of the game.

It's like in soccer when you get the ball and you run into the corner to waste time. It's not against the rules but it's a pretty cowardly way of playing.
