Notice the WSCO reporting marks. That sure sounds like private cars for the Woolery Stone Company. The second card shows a movement from Adams quarry to the Woolery Mill. According to maps, the Adams quarry was on a long spur (more like a branch) running from Clear Creek, down to Sanders at which point there was a switch back into the industries. This branch was actually the old mainline before the wash out. While there were a lot of Woolery mills in the region, none were on that branch. This means that this particular car movement (Adams to Woolery) was probably several miles long.
