Point taken. However, most of us are just using "real china" to describe the Corelle plates, as compared to what we've been getting in the past year, it certainly feels like "real china".Real china is also called porcelain. Amtrak is not bringing porcelain back to dining cars. Most likely they intend to bring some form of Corelle glass-based tableware back as was used just before the change to plastic. This is a massive improvement over cheap plastic plates but it is not "real china" anymore than stainless steel is "real silverware."
