Powered minecarts go uphill?

Does a powered minecart bring you uphill? I want a quick way of getting around my mineshaft(up and down). Any help?

Additional details - 3 years ago

Oh yeah my mine shaft goes down at a 45 degree angle.

A powered minecart is not powerful enough to push a cart loaded with a player up a 45 degree incline. If you want the minecart to get you uphill you must lessen the slope to about a 1:2 (1 up, 2 over, 1 up, 2 over ect.) or less. Sorry

Have you tried a minecart booster?

The first two minutes should cover the type of booster that fits your scenario.
