 NOTES : The Steel Trolley fixed old-fashioned pies with fresh fruits and
 handmade dough and serves them 24 hours a day.  Co-owners Earle and
 Jacki Hersman enlisted Earle’s 78-year-old mother, Dorothy Sutherin, to
 make the from-scratch dough at home and bring it in each morning. 
 Sutherin’s pie teammate, 71-year-old Hazel Allison, reports to the
 50s-style diner at 3:30 am to make the filling and bake the pies.  “I
 love it,” says Allison of her job, which she works on a volunteer
 basis.  “If you don't enjoy what your're doning, you won't be successful
 at it.”  The duo sells such tasty varieties as apple raisin and the
 house specialty, oatmeal for $1.60 a slice.  Sutherin and Allison not
 only make their pies from scratch, they make them from memory; the
 bakers haven't looked at a riecie since, well, as long as they can
 remember.  Steel Trolley Diner, 140 E. Linclon Way, Lisbon, OH,
