It's the pipework from the uderframe air tanks.

 

It fits on the end of the torpedo style air tanks between the bogies.

 

If you look at the loco side-on with the fans to the right -> it fits on the end of the tanks nearest to you now.

Spot on Rob. The air reservoir tank's and pipework are nicely modelled on it. There's a lot of fine detail under the chassis on the models with conduit, pipes and valves.
