A 26-year-old man has died after receiving a massive electric shock while attempting to graffiti train carriages in a Brisbane railway yard.

Officers said the men were attempting to graffiti train carriages and when the 26-year-old climbed onto one of the carriages he raised his hands and sustained a massive electric shock.
The man received deep thickness burns to 90 per cent of his body and was taken to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital, where he later died.
