Its the wheel axle box could be a main wheel bearing there bronze and have the cork bung above to fill it with oil, on diesels class 08/09's have them one on each axle(3) each side with cork bungs to stop the oil coming back out.....

I was thinking a big end in the middle. But the wheel is not to bad. Long as spares are available I think. I bet they are running around like blue fingered fly's. at the moment.

Still there today. There didn’t appear to be anybody working on it. Nice “bonus” to see it but shame it was sat broken and not moving.

Edit - I seem to have issues posting photos. It’s the right way up on my phone!
