A bare-chested fight between two men at Masterton Railway Station last weekend has resulted in two arrests.

Police were called to "two males, both with their shirts off, having a physical fight", according to Sergeant Quentin Haera.

When police arrived, "they were at a stand-off", Mr Haera said.

"Neither of them (were) wanting to say anything."

Mr Haera said the altercation was while a train was at the station with "a number of vehicles" and people present.

Two men, aged 53 and 32, were arrested and charged with fighting in a public place.
