Tom Perrins has produced a very simple new 6-part composition of Stedman Caters, copied below (you're going to have to stop publishing comps as graphics on your facebook page, Tom!)

I'm more than a bit suspicious of the design motivation (which seems to be to obtain all 144 "CRUs"), but am strangely drawn to the simplicity of the construction:

5184 Stedman Caters
231456789	1   12  13  15
342156798	-   -   -   -  
342156789	-   s

231456798	-   -   -   -
132645789	1,s2,5,[6],7,9,s12,15
6 part, calling [6] in alternate parts only
Contains 24 56s etc.

On 10 bells, the application of a 6 part shouts out to me to consider the rounds -> queens transposition. Time for a bit of focus, Tom...
