In a word, no. If this facility had been available at the time of introduction, back in the 1970's, I am sure that Hornby would have made everyone know about it.

Definitely not. I had Zero 1 many years ago.

With more modern digital systems it is possible to run a chipped loco on a 12v DC system. Additionally many DCC systems can run a single non chipped loco (although I think this can lead to over heating(.

However none of this applied to Zero 1.

& if the locomotive is left stationary on DCC track the motor will almost certainly burn out.
