No officer, agent, or employee of a company operating a railroad, except the superintendent, general managing agent, or receiver of the company, may sell or dispose of worn or scrap metal, iron, brass, or other metal owned by such company. All sales and barter of such scraps or other metals made by any other officer, agent, or employee are void. No such superintendent, managing agent, or receiver shall sell or dispose of such scrap or other metals in quantities less than one ton, nor without delivering to the purchaser a bill of sale of such metal, a copy of which shall be retained and filed in the office of such superintendent, agent, or receiver. If a superintendent, managing agent, or receiver of a railroad company sells or disposes of railroad scrap metal in quantities less than one ton, or without delivering a bill of sale of such metal to the purchaser, the company which he represents shall not thereafter be entitled to the benefit of sections 4973.14 and 4973.15 of the Revised Code.
