I'm not sure about a double pram but there were single buggies being lifted into the main train. There was a container carriage to take the pushchairs/prams.

I think your daughter might get bored, there's not much to see for a girl that age, my 3 y old son is train mad, if he wasn't into trains we wouldn't even take him there.
