It's not like the manufacturers can tool something like that up overnight.  They have to either alter an existing model or make a new one, then get in line at the factory.  The whole process can take more than a year.
Regardless of any tie-ins with 2156, to me it makes perfect sense for Walthers or BLI to use their existing Y tooling to make other classes.

  Has anyone heard of any plans to build/sell an affordable HO- (or N-) scale model of the Y6a 2156 that's supposed to move from St. Louis to Roanoke sometime this year? Seems like the timing of that would be perfect for a model release and make someone some money.  It would be nice if the model didn't have the rear engine turning separate from the boiler. I know this is probably wishful thinking, but.     There are lots of Y6b's running around but not much otherwise that I've seen, of Y-class models.
