Try this (untested):
gc servers.txt|%{Get-Service -ComputerName $_| Where-Object { $_.status -match "running" -and $_.DisplayName -match "(SNMP Service)" | Select-Object *, @{name="servername"; expression="$($_.servername)"}}

Open in new window

Select-Object : Key "expression" cannot have an empty string value.

Then it's not called $_.servername. It's probably just $_

gc servers.txt|%{Get-Service -ComputerName $_| Where-Object { $_.status -match "running" -and $_.DisplayName -match "(SNMP Service)" | Select-Object *, @{name="servername"; expression="$_"}}

Being further down the pipeline at the point of the Select-Object command, we need to grab the information further upstream.  Something like below will work:
gc servers.txt|%{$comp = $_; Get-Service -ComputerName $_| Where-Object { $_.status -match "running" -and $_.DisplayName -match "(SNMP Service)"} | Select-Object *, @{name="servername"; expression="$($comp)"}}

The computer name is there, it just isn't displayed by default. So simply use:
gc servers.txt|% {
  Get-Service -ComputerName $_ -DisplayName "SNMP Service" } |
  Where-Object { $_.status -eq "Running" } |
  select @{n="ServerName"; e={$_.MachineName}}, Status, Name, DisplayName

Open in new window

You should try to filter the service names as soon as possible to reduce the amount of exchanged data when using remote targets.
