Topic arises from my post in October,
http://www.railforums.co.uk/showthread.php?t=53289&page=4

If you're a seldom traveller who's stranded in a maze
Of railway lines and timetables and noticeboard displays;
An ostrich who doesn't know their EMU from their DMU,
And your heart keeps going tickTOC when you're not sure what to DOO;
Afraid to make a NRCoC-up (oops) or to BOJ your special journey -
Then the excellent RailUK Forums are the bestest place to learn'ee!

Here are a few I've sussed out, I hope they are correct:

ATOC Association of Train Operating Companies
CIV (French) Convention Internationale pour le transport des Voyageurs
DOO Driver Only Operation
NRCoC National Rail Conditions of Carriage
NRE National Rail Enquiries
NXEA National Express East Anglia
RPI Revenue Protection Inspector
TOC train operating company
TVM Ticket vending machine
XC Cross Country

Many others at http://www.railway-technical.com/LAAR.shtml
"originally produced by the Railway Systems Group at the University of Sheffield in co-operation with Railtrack and other organisations. Experts at the University of Sheffield now update the list on a regular basis"
... no point my reinventing the wheel!
