It should be a lot more fun, even though it is more challenging, and I still need to talk with HR about why the groups are trying to call it a lateral move with no pay increase at the moment. That part I'm less amused with at the moment.

wow! Sounds exciting. I hope when I'm finished with my engineering degree I can find a sweet job like that.

There wasn't much opportunity for overtime in the old location though.
With more work I agree you should get a bump in pay. The extra distance kinda sucks, but at least it isn't much more.
