Wildfire smoke on Amtrak?

I'm considering taking Amtrak on an unavoidable trip. I'd be on the California Zephyr leaving from Emeryville, and I'm worried about the smoke from all of the wildfires, both in California and in Colorado. It's been really bothering me in my apartment. How well do the trains filter outside air? I wanted to avoid flying for a variety of reasons, but will fly if I have to. I was planning to get an individual bedroom on the train. If you haven't been on Amtrak near a fire, can you recommend a train forum where I could post this question?
