It looks like an Italian diesel loco to me.

It is a D341 but I think it is not the one from Rivarossi. I believe this is the version from Lima (no. 201), and it still has the old Lima N couplers. From about 1969 Lima changed the couplers to Arnold Rapido type, so this model would date from around 1967-8. Jurassic N! ;D

Yes I agree with @Hiawatha  that's an early version of Lima's D341.  A couple of these have been through ebay in recent months.  In my view only of interest to collectors of early N gauge, it's only driven on one axle and has the HO or HOe style couplers rather than Rapidos.

Hi,
It’s a Lima italian diesel D341....with wrong roof; it was mounted ( by the stamps) on the contrary respect real model.
Cheers from Italy

Again,
The exact model is the Rivarossi one with roof on correct position.

 :thankyousign: Thank you all for your suggestions, the loco came as part of a collection of very early N Gauge stock from the 60/70's.

Well if you don't want it.... I'll give you a fiver for it  :D As I said it probably only appeals to collectors as it won't be reliable to run and as Marco says the roof was a major male chicken-up compared to the Rivarossi version (had one of those back in the 70s).  I do have a soft spot for collecting old N gauge, Ibertren 3-rail etc.

Yes it's the ancient 1960s Lima FS D341.

It dates from the same Lima 'overscale'* era as the SNCF 67000, DB V100, DB V100 painted as 'fantasy' BR blue diesel, horrendous BR standard 2-6-4T, Lima BR class 31



* though in some cases - notably the 67000 the body was not far off scale but the chassis was far too cumbersome
