The Shaoshan 1 (SS1) is a type of AC-powered electric locomotive used by China Railways. This locomotive was the first Chinese electric main line locomotive, built by the Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Works with the assistance of the Soviet Union and following the design of the Soviet-H60 electric locomotive (SŽD VL60). The power supply was an industrial frequency single-phase AC with a Co-Co axle arrangement.

The first prototype locomotive, 6Y1-001, used an ignition-controlled rectifier and was produced in 1958. A further 6 prototypes (002 to 007) were produced between 1962 and 1966. A silicon semiconductor-controlled rectifier was used from No. 004 onward.

Later on, major modifications were made to the design of the locomotive, improving the reliability of the rectifier, traction motors and rheostat braking system. The eighth locomotive, No. 008, was produced in 1968. The series was also renamed from 6Y1 to SS1 (SS stands for Shaoshan, the birthplace of Chinese leader Mao Zedong). The model went out of production in 1988 with a total of 826 manufactured: 7 of 6Y1 and 819 of SS1.
