Q Connection is an entrepreneurial business, started in February of 1996 by David Lotz and his sons.  From April of 2011 through October of 2013 it was owned and operated Tom Whitt while David worked for ExactRail, but is once again owned by David.  We have grown from offering a small line of Chicago, Burlington & Quincy related coffee mugs and mouse pads to a very diverse hobby company:
