Bob if you look close you can see a cable or hook wrapped around the front bumper on first two jeeps. I suspect the cable was the tie-down, along with the block of wood under the bumper.

Photo: Jeeps On Chicago Great Western Flat Car
An undated (probably WW II) photo from an unknown source:
The location probably is Barstow, CA.
I can't see any tie-downs in the photo but there certainly is adequate blocking for the jeeps.
Also notice the Santa Fe Caswell drop-bottom gondolas in the background.
