    the locomotive you like is a D343 class diesel locomotive. That class went into service during the second half of the '60s and it's still use in regular service. It's a diesel electric locomotive but it was not so powerful... about 900 Kw, so it has benn used on flat lines (check the map: Milan, Verona, Cremona, Parma, Brescia and so others cities in norther Italy).
    If you want, look at
    and you will find the special number of the magazine dedicated to that locomotive... (and it's quite cheap!)
