| I'm guessing that the rows in those 3 new leads are either ones that
would have appeared in the missing 3 leads from base course or else they
have 1,7&8 in a combination that doesn't occur in the base | |course.
I think it's even more sophisticated than that actually. If you look at the
rows approaching the course end in Rutland versus in Belvedere:
Rutland: Belvedere:
*52317486* *32417586
25134768* *23145768
21537486* *21347586
12354768* *12435768*
21345678 21345678
12436587 1243658712345678 12345678
Then you've got a 3-way rotation in Belvedere against Rutland ->
So every time a course ends B instead of TWR that fixes two other
courses that must also so end (24536 and 25346 in the case of the
plain course).
I think there are 7 such courses per part as follows:
5xx6x
5x6xx
56xxx
6xx5x
6x5xx
65xxx
6xxx5
Which seem to fit into two sets of three and then a final one that is
handled by the part end.
Some relationship like this might even occur elsewhere in those leads,
I guess, although I haven't checked that.
Cheers,
Alan
