I may be getting the D600 and I was wondering if it would be possible to use this great Tamron

lens I've used so my on my film camera.It is not terrible old glass and I wonder whether all the functions of this IF would be preserved on the new D600. Thank you.

Because Nikon does not give lens/body interface information to aftermarket lens companies they must reverse engineer their lenses to work with Nikon.  It is very common for these lenses to have problems with newer bodies which have slightly different interfaces.  Sometimes the aftermarket lens companies will offer firmware replacements (that have to be done by sending the lens back.)  The best way to establish whether your old lens will work is to try it on a D600 body.  If it doesn't, contact Tamron and see if they can update it.
