Default blown out

I can get shots in, but not to my liking, such as this recent one:

my skies are ALWAYS blown out. I have to adjust exposure quite a bit as I tend to underexpose when I take the shot. Any ideas on how to fix the sky next time i process if i underexpose, mainly in PS elements.

Do you take RAW files?

To me, it made a hell of a difference to the sky when I started taking RAW files and I rarely find the sky getting blown out now, even when exposing for the train. You can try using the shadows/ highlights tool (darken highlights) under "Adjust lighting", but do not go too mad with this as it gives a fake look when overdone.
