Yes.  Bachmann engines will operate on DC and, if equipped with a Bachmann decoder, on DCC as well.

I believe all their advertising states this.

pew-

A new in the box J will operate fine on either DC or DCC. The decoder identifies which control system is in the rails and runs
the loco accordingly. If you are looking at a used loco on eBay or somewhere, be aware that a former user may have modified
the loco to run on DCC only. If it's a used loco, I strongly urge you to find out if the loco will run on DC before you purchase it.
