Sorry.. there is only 1 repository. You don't have a remote and a local repository. When you do a check out (create a working copy) you only will get the head revision).
You can checkout only 1 branch though... you realize you don't need to check out the full repository right?

This is what I do, I check out trunk and each branch I am working out separately. I personally don't like switch because it is easy to forget which branch you are switched to.
I'm not sure if you understand the difference between a repository and a working copy. I think if you had a clear understanding of each you wouldn't say you want a "local repository".
