Trying to memorize many connected items.

I am having a few problems with honing in on a method for learning the attached image. The list on the left hand side is merely a series of stations, junctions and tunnels, I have created a visual journey in around my house for this, and it has cemented rather well; I have separated them out by topic - Stations, tunnels etc.

My issue is trying to connected the second column to the first. These series of letters refer to have many railways lines there are on a certain section of the track. DTVF means Down Trent Valley Fast. Down being the direction of the line, Trent Valley the location and Fast the speed.

Would anyone be able to offer up suggestions?

Kindest Regards,

I think the obvious answer would be to (i) gather all possible acronyms you might have (the right column), (ii) come up with images for them and (iii) link them to the images on the left column.
So, for instance, DTVS could be DosToieVSki and UTVS could be a bunch of "utility task vehicles". You could then picture many "Dostoievsky"s driving UTVs and interacting somehow with the picture on the left column, all of them placed at some locus.

Does that make sense?
