A 41-year-old Kapiti man has been arrested for allegedly tagging trains at Waikanae railway station.

The man faces eight counts of intentional damage related to graffiti on trains parked in the station stabling yard between May 29 and July 26.

"Damage such as graffiti to train carriages costs KiwiRail a considerable amount of money and resources," Sergeant Jackie Muir said.

The man is due to appear in Porirua District Court this week.
