[SA] Yantaringa Railway Station

Location: Stobie Poll City (Adelaide).
Hi all,

Living on the now-shut Bridgewater line, I have made it my business to find out where all the shut stations are/were. I have managed to find out where all the stations up to Mt Barker, bar one. The only one that I haven't found is Yantaringa railway station, between Bridgewater and Ambleside. If anyone had any info on the stations whereabouts, I would be most greatful.

It's one of those stations that has disappeared, I believe it was at the end of Ambulance Rd.

If you've got the National Railway Museum DVD featuring Kym Bird's movies, there's a couple of shots of it in there, including in a demolished state. It was just a wooden step down with a name board, nothing substantial.
