You mean 12 left....  :D
I ordered one at my local hobby shop. Hopefully I get the call soon.

My local dealer was grumpy the other day— he was saying that many mail order shops put the "in stock" up when they get the shipping notice from MicroTrains, not when they have actually received the product.  I have had the 2nd run TBOX set on order for quite some time.

Funny, I've been refreshing the N scale New Arrivals page religiously for the past few days and haven't seen them come up...But when I do a manual search for "Micro-Trains," lo and behold, they show up.

At any rate...Just got mine. Been waiting for these cars FOREVER. Can't wait!

I got the notice this morning from MBK that these were in stock. I thought about passing on them but figured I'd be sorry for doing so. There were 48 in stock at that time. As I type this they show 6. I am surprised that any remain. I really should be buying turnouts for a new and improved layout  I am planning in the new space I am acquiring from moving this fall.  Maybe next month.

*Update* I was typing and now reading the above post. Make that 5 of the 3 pack versions left.

Same.  I succumbed to the pressure about 4:45AM my time after a long night of overtime.  There was one left so I bought it.  Along with a crap-ton of ESM 33" and 36" wheels.   :facepalm:

If anyone is still looking for the v1 set in the old TTX logo scheme, Nicholas Smith Trains in Philly still has one set left for now.  My son snagged the last v2 set along with one of the two v1 sets they had on hand while between flights out at the National Training Center at Fort Irwin...  ;)

Update: removed the link since both v1 and v2 3 packs are now sold out.  That didn't take long. 

Cheers,
Brian

Looks like I missed out completely for the same reason. A bit disappointed in MBK that it did not show up in the new products the way I normally search. They might lose some more of my hobby dollars as a result.

Well...

Good news and bad news on MBKs final MTL T Box restock.

The Good News Is:

1. At around 11:30 AM EST there where 51 sets in stock at MBK.

2. As of 4:25 PM EST 46 sets were still in stock.

3. Expiring on 9/17/21, MBK has a 10% discount coupon 10FREIGHT available for freight car purchases.

The Bad News Is:

The MBK discount price for the version two sets has gone up $13.96: from the $95.99 that they were previously listed and sold for to the current figure of $109.95.
