Thank you for your question!

Sadly, I'm afraid we don't have any film archives like you describe.  Looking into it, and reading the articles you mentioned it sounds like a fascinating film that would be of great local interest.

One place that might be worth looking into is the Union Pacific Museum in Council Bluffs.  I've linked to their contact page.

And this is a long shot, but you also might try Film Streams, a local non-profit theater dedicated to promoting and preserving independent films as an art form.  They may also have other contacts and leads to research.  

Good luck on finding a copy!
