[r-t] Brunel

Brunel reminds me of some other principles I wrote out.

If you take 1,3, or 5 rows of forward or reverse hunting on 3 separated by 
nths place being made then you get a variety of principles, including 
Original, Erin, Stedman and Titanic.

I've identified them according to how much wrong and right hunting they 
W1 is 3.N
W2 is 3.1.3.N
W3 is
R1 is 1.N
R2 is 1.3.1.N
R3 is

It would be tricky to get peals of the unnamed ones, but they might be fun 
to ring, especially the ones with two different lengths of section. With 
these calls at the back would noticably change where you were on the line. 
For example with a principle with single and double dodges then if you 
were completing a double dodge 6/7 up when a bob was called then you would 
do one more dodge for the bob, then one dodge for the other work in 6/7 

On the other hand, going into the front and determining whether to ring 
'quick' or 'slow' work would be easier as the number of dodges would tell 
you the length and so type of the section. Quick work is one section, slow 
work is 5 sections, made from alternating slow and quick sections. A Quick 
section is either W1 or R3. Slow sections are W2, W3, R1, R2. Sections W1, 
R1 cause the back bells to plain hunt, W2, R2 causes one dodge, W3, R3 
causes two dodges.

R3W2 looks quite fun, with alternating single and double dodges at the 
back and slow work of a half turn, long whole turn, and half turn, and 
Stedman quick work.

They also help explain the construction of Stedman Triples. As the 
sections end with nths place which is the type of place for right hunting 
you can consider Stedman as 5 changes of wrong hunting and 7 changes of 
right hunting, so for the slow work there is 5+5+5 = 15 changes of wrong 
hunting and 7+7 = 14 changes of right hunting (+ perhaps 1/2 a change 
either end of right hunting going from 4ths to 3rds and 3rds to 4ths 

I've tried to arrange the starts so that 7ths place is made back and hand 
and that the start is just after a symmetry point in a quick section, or 
just before 7ths for principles with one type of section (which are all 
slow sections).

Sixes of one type:
7.1 = R1 'Original'

Sixes of two types = R1W1 'Titanic'
http://www.boojum.org.uk/cgi-bin/line.pl?bells=7&pn= = R2W1
http://www.boojum.org.uk/cgi-bin/line.pl?bells=7&pn= = W2W1
http://www.boojum.org.uk/cgi-bin/line.pl?bells=7&pn= = W3W1
http://www.boojum.org.uk/cgi-bin/line.pl?bells=7&pn= = R3R1
http://www.boojum.org.uk/cgi-bin/line.pl?bells=7&pn= = R3R2
http://www.boojum.org.uk/cgi-bin/line.pl?bells=7&pn= = R3W2
http://www.boojum.org.uk/cgi-bin/line.pl?bells=7&pn= = R3W3 'Stedman'
