A foolhardy man has been caught clinging to the windscreen wipers of a Perth train as it travelled at its full speed of 110 km/h.

Anxious motorists travelling parallel to the train tracks captured the reckless stunt on their phones and posted it online to a mixed response of amusement and horror.

The 23-year-old man eventually got off the back of the train at Glendalough Station in the inner-city Perth suburbs on Saturday, ABC reported.

He was then detained by Perth public transport enforcement offices who had been monitoring the situation on CCTV.

He has since been arrested by police and the Western Australian Public Transport Authority has officially commented on the risks of such train-surfing.

"He was clinging on to a windscreen wiper, were he to fall it's a very unfriendly and unreceptive surface with ballast and rail and concrete sleepers, he would have almost certainly been killed, if not badly injured," PTA spokesman David Hynes said.
