To extend the "X above, Y below" scheme, which works, for example, with:
"everyone rings Cambridge Surprise Major when a nominated reference
bell is above the treble, and Lincolnshire when it's below"
have the rule, for example:
"everyone rings Cambridge Surprise Major when a nominated reference
bell is above the treble, Lessness when it's 'with' the treble, and
Rutland when it's below"
where being 'with' the treble is defined as both bells being in 1/2 or
3/4 or 5/6 &c.
This works! In this instance it gives a true plain course of 1152
changes. With the 2nd as reference bell it looks like this:
1152 (= 36*32) {Cambridge,Lessness,Rutland}

Other, perhaps less expected combinations work, too:
1152 (= 36*32) {Yorkshire,London,London}

And there's quite a fine gradation in plain-course length. For example:
1120 (= 35*32) {Rutland,Superlative,Superlative}

This {X,Y,Z} scheme seems to offer more valid possibilities than the
simpler {X,Y} scheme: perhaps that's obvious, or at least likely.
Anyway, here's one more example:
640 (= 20*32) {Glasgow,Belfast,London}
