Why doesn't this work?

Probably because port 6001 is not open to accept connections on the
gateway machine.

But both those approaches are inefficient and tedious. You are best just
adding the entry:

Host Workstation
ProxyCommand=ssh -qax -o "clearAllForwardings=yes" Gateway nc %h %p

to your Workstation:~/.ssh/config file and then a simple:

Home> ssh -X Workstation

will work fine (and efficiently over a single ssh session).
