A quick google search brings me to the wikipedia page for the Montreal Metro which says the main maintenance facility is at the intersection of Crémazie and Saint-Laurent Boulevards here:

My interest is Metro Line 3 that was to have used CN’s Mount Royal Tunnel.

Would the tunnel line have been converted to a rubber tired system like the rest of the Metro or would it have been an isolated line with equipment very similar to that used through the tunnel today but on a much greater frequency? .......I don’t believe a rubber tired system can operate in the open in our climate so would there have been an interchange station between the new Metro line and the remaining CN electric system to Deux Montagnes?

On the downtown end, would the new line have been rerouted away from Gare Centrale and into Bonaventure or Square-Victoria Metro Stations to permit full integration into the rest of the system?

While I found it only after my summer 2010 visit to Montreal, this website is very informative and well done:

I wouldn't pay too much attention to that site, hasn't been updated in under 10 years.
