    Alan,
    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
    http://www.itreni.com/it/catalogo/catalogo.htm
    and you will find the special number of the magazine dedicated to that locomotive... (and it's quite cheap!)

    Ciao, Jgiovenni
