With a 256 colors limit it would look terrible. An animated .png file could do, but the size will be giant. And as it's not a standard, only Opera & Firefox can handle it.

i'll just gonna swap out the image on a regular basis. i'm not so excited about animated images, especially in such prominent positions. they are in general not considered good style.

Another idea :
I'm sure  you know  tool named personas for mozilla utilities.
http://www.getpersonas.com/
And why not run a contest for create an personas of Simutrans ?
https://www.getpersonas.com/en-US/en/demo_create

Second another idea ;-)
Do you know  apng fomat a non offcial png format ( possibilities to animate a png with his layers)
http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animated_Portable_Network_Graphics
If you use latest versions of firefox these runs ( browser Opera too)
I tested few months ago creating animated personas with apng Edit plugin
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/apng-edit/






Current projects in progress : improvements of few designed french paks
