I just returned from the Santa Fe Railway Historical & Modeling Society Convention. A speaker at that convention was Eric Brock, a professional railroader who is very experienced working with shippers on loads. In response to a question about cutting holes in the steel deck of any flat car he says in was a forbidden practice. Sometimes happened but that usually was followed by a notice to the shipper to stop doing it. Welding braces, tie-down structures, etc. was common and approved.
