just got word from my local tech raymond Manley at rays electric trains that mine have come in. he loaded the latest software version on to the two remotes I purchased and are on my way to house via mail right now. If they check out ok with ray I suspect they are going to be good. how they hold up long term is anyone's guess.

a quick question for those who would know. since the remotes are in and shipping out are the thumb wheel parts in also for the techs? I forgot to ask ray that one. he stated that he was getting more from mth in this next and last run when I ordered them from him. 

I suppose that's not as bad as Peculiar, MO.   I used to drive down from Kansas City to Joplin for a consulting customer.  It was easier to fly into KC and drive down than find a closer airport and deal with connecting flights.  You passed right by Peculiar on the way, I finally had to stop and see how they got that name.   It is certainly... peculiar!

Hi there, just wanted to share that I do now see the bottom back of the remotes and they do have the 50-1038 (despite the packages showing 50-1002).  Also to just to note, the remotes did already have 6.10 loaded in them, I just confirmed they did in this case.  (In addition to fully testing, I always check/update the version load on TIUs, Remotes, WIUs, etc before shipping and make notes in the official email for later reference if a question comes up later (years down the road) if we need to update them or not.) 

Now that the new remotes are in, I haven't attempted to order additional complete thumb-wheel assemblies. But like what was already stated here in a later post, I do remember receiving the notification from MTH that they would no longer sell the complete assembly as a part.  Based on that I figured it would still be the case and that I wouldn't be able to obtain additional stock even now.
