the combined baggage - coach cars continued into the 600 series.
As I already posted, the new first class coaches started at 1200. Southern did have an order from Pullman in early 1901 which backfilled 1179-1185 in the predecessor series for first class coaches starting at 900.
Combines 575-578 were ordered from Pullman on December 11, 1896 and are probably related to the floor plan which you posted.
