Guys;

I remember seeing tarped loads close up, and those I saw were held
in place
with long strips of wood nailed to the deck or floor. The nails
went right
through the wood and tarp. The excess tarp appeared to have been
folded
under the wood so no excess tarp would flap around, maybe?
Elden, I have a number of photos of canvas covered machinery loaded
on flat cars, and what you describe is exactly what they show.
