The dynamics of a system of three long Josephson transmission lines coupled at a common end point is investigated. We report several periodic fluxon states and trace out the corresponding zero field steps. The boundary conditions at the common point lead to a very different stability of steps for odd and even numbers of fluxons. In addition we find two ''normal state'' branches for the IV curve, where either two or three of the branches are in their normal state.
