In 1925, The TSR opened Eldorado Park in order to spur Sunday ridership. The TSR owned this 100-hectare (250-acre) recreational property, which was located on the Credit River near Churchville. One period photo shows a 12-coach train pulled by electric locomotive number 300 bound for Eldorado Park.
By 1931, the Guelph line was only carrying 300 daily passengers, compared to 1,662 cars and nine buses per day travelling along the essentially parallel Highway 7. A bond interest default caused the Guelph line to go into receivership and be shut down on 15 August 1931. After receivership ended on 13 September 1935, the line was promptly dismantled
