It does, but not the best way to do it, wires soldered to the track are far better.

Take it from me, model railways and soldering go together like fish and chips. You’ll end up doing it eventually so you might as well start now.

Yep, soldering is the way to go. I'd never done it before so I practised and practised on old pieces of track until I could do it neatly and without melting sleepers. Just keep soldering on (groan!) until you get it right. Copious cups of tea and custard creams are part of the secret to success. Jelly snakes also help.
