Great catch, thanks for sharing.  I believe that Q601 is a southbound Waycross to New Orleans train.  That may be Q604 (Winston Yard to Waycross).

Thank you. Had seen this train many times over the years and it was always called Q601.

Had 601 across the Florida Panhandle though Pensacola, Mobile, Al to New Orleans. Back in the day, this was the run through connection with the Espee. It was 400, then when it was still L&N/SCL.
Other side was Q602.

Interesting, I’m curious why they would number a northbound with an odd number. I thought they were always even.

Finally found an old freight schedule from 1995.  It shows Q601 as a Winston-Baldwin-Jacksonville-Baldwin-Tallahasee-Mobile-New Orleans-East Bridge, LA train.  I'm guessing the odd-number because the majorty of its route is Jax to New Orleans. The CSX schedule does not show it going to Waycross however.
