Can I use a 1st class Eurail pass on local train that only has 2nd class seats?

I read that you can only use the Eurail pass for 1st class seats but when I use the time table to look up trains that don't require reservations it gives me local trains that only have second class seats available. So will I be able to use my eurail pass for these trains because they only have second class carriages?
