Default Wanted: Vintage radio schematic - Philips B5CA66U (India)

I am looking for the schematic for the following Philips tube radio made in India in the 1950s: Model B5CA 66U. Any info (on similar models too, at the schematic level) would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks - Ram.

Try a public library. Here in Canada, some of the large public libraries have the Sams Photofact or Radio College of Canada publications in the reference department, with schematics and service data going back to the 1920's. Your local library might be able to arrange for a loan from a larger branch, or possibly get a print from a microfiche archive.

An old established electronics repair shop should also have a good set of those service publications. Sometimes if you ask nicely they will make a photocopy or let you borrow it.

Thanks for the inputs folks. Actually I tried Sams and a whole lot of people round the globe - no luck. But I did figure out that a other Philips India models have sections that are largely similar. In fact the section between UCH81 and UBF89 is almost identical to another Philips India model B2CA99U, so that plus a little guesswork helped me get things right in that crucial section. Its amazing how similar these models are.
