Every loco should carry a crowbar just in case the points on a switch won't move.

Indeed they did (at least the ones I rode )
Only how do we arrange for handling them in the smaller scales, where that phenomenon is rather frequent?

Well, in larger scales (1/35) a length of brass rod (or even steel?) would work.  A 6d nail could work with the head and tip cut off.

Some wheel chocks to keep the train from rolling away on its own might be helpful.

A re-railing frog would look nice also.
