How often are "A" cards used today?

It seems right at the opening of Penn Sta, PRR assigned 2 of the 4 towers (cabins), A,B,C & D, to the LIRR to man. Tower B became "KN" & tower D became "JO" using LIRR's "call letters" designation system. There's some info in this "East Wind" PDF at Steve's site at: http://www.trainsarefun.com/lirr/East%20Wind%20Special%20Issues/EastWind_Special%20Edition%201.pdf See pages 20, 54 & 57 for quick reference to these towers.
p.s. If, like me, you get interested & read the whole PDF (re: building of the tunnels, Penn & Sunnyside) & want more, you can just change the very last digit in the URL from '1' into either a '2' or a '3' for parts two or three. (so the %201.pdf becomes %202 or %203.pdf) Or, part 1 | part 2 | part 3
