    On the MTA's XE40s at least, the HVAC is in the rear, yes.

    Created this as a fun what-if: 5249 as a D40LF instead of the actual 1999 RTS.

    Signature Image Size

    So I was trying to update my signature, swapping out the full size bus image for this one of a sign in a train. I uploaded it to flickr and then copied the link here but it comes out really small and I can't make it any wider than 100 pixels or higher than 42 pixels. Is there any way around this?
