    See if you can find Omer Lavallee's book Canadian Pacific Steam Locomotives.
    This will show you all the locos you could want, and probably shows the switchers in Montreal. (I never saw big city switching, and our town was switched by whatever was on the local freight: usually 10-wheelers or Pacifics, but once a Royal Hudson.)
    Biggest problem will be actually finding models of them.
