Needed a ur and a xy-chain to solve it. Anyone find a 1-stepper?

Dan, I originally used five steps but after reading your comments, I reviewed my solution but still needed three steps including a Type 2 UR and a xy-chain to finish it off.

What magic did you employ?

All three puzzles can be completed with an XY-Chain, but there's an alternative that's not a UR.

Dan, thanks for the info.

I had a different position after basics.
Code:

 *--------------------------------------------------------------------*
 | 2      8      7      | 3      56     9      | 1      56     4      |
 | 9      136    134    | 2457   256    2467   | 236    23568  3568   |
 | 346    36     5      | 1      268    2468   | 236    7      9      |
 |----------------------+----------------------+----------------------|
 | 1      4      6      | 2578   2358   278    | 9      2358   358    |
 | 5      7      239    | 289    4      268    | 236    1      368    |
 | 8      239    239    | 259    23569  1      | 4      2356   7      |
 |----------------------+----------------------+----------------------|
 | 7      5      1239   | 6      19     23     | 8      4      13     |
 | 36     1236   8      | 24     7      234    | 5      9      136    |
 | 346    1369   1349   | 89     189    5      | 7      36     2      |


I reached the code posted by you only after using a x-wing <6> in r16c58. Then I had the same UR <36> and xy-chain (in this case a w-wing <36> with strong link <3> in col3) as you posted. Actually, the UR had additional deletions but they were not helpful.

Ted

Edit: Correction made: w-wing strong link on <3>, not <9> as originally posted.
