A Delay Switch in Rail Lift

Delay Switches[1], or Timer Switches[2], are objects that are found in Yoshi's Story.

Delay Switches give more time to a ? Switch event. To trigger the Delay Switch, the Yoshi must shoot an egg at it to flip it. There are many of them in certain levels. Delay Switches also act as ? Switches, so when the Yoshi attempts to flip the panel without pressing the ? Switch first, the event will start normally as if he pressed the ? Switch. When the music becomes sped-up, the Yoshi has little time left in the event unless it flips another Delay Switch with another Yoshi Egg.
