SG's path for this 8.4 JBT similar to Alfred's:
// ext. als-xz: (9=45)ei1-(148=6)d3f13-d7=i7 # -9i7
1. UR(18)::(1)a89=*(4)f1-(4=9)i1-(9=1)b1 # -1a13
// WW(68)d3,i7/di8; -6d7

two paths for the 40x series --

P408 is a very tough 9.0 which drags its' feet all the way, I lost patience at step 5
and used a kraken where a series of AIC will suffice, perhaps someone can

and not More...

P400: loopy 8.4, hard to find a short path, both SG & SE long and gnarly

P402: the pattern aals unreachable in SG's world, so it failed; still IMHO a JBT;
