Any photos of interior of CB&Q "Silver Dome"?

Guys,
 
I am looking for COLOR photos of the interior of the "original" modern dome car,
the CB&Q "Silver Dome". I am not soliciting color shots from "later in life", I
need some from say around 1950ish or so, would be good. I have plenty of "black
and white" photos. I am desperately seeking "early interior color" photos (I
know, good luck right?) As you may know, the Mad River & NKP Museum in
Bellevue, OH has her stored inside, and out of the weather. They are currently
raising the funds to fully restore the interior to original.  As I said, they have
a lot of shots of the original interior layout in black and white, but would
really like to find some in color, if possible. I found the appropriate
"Railway Age" article covering it's debut that, as you could guess, goes into a
great detailed description of the car. But, a little more information would be
appreciated. I have contacted the BRHS and they sent me some wonderful
information with photos, but again, they were of course, black and white. The
museum has contacted the Burlington for information and possible photos. But
anyway, if anyone has some or knows of where to find some, please let me know.  
Thank you.
