Map Line Animation

I am animating a map for a documentary about WW1.
I need to make the Western Front line and color animate from on position to the other. This would be easy if the line were made from paths–but the line was created in Photoshop and has a ripple and texture, and is rasterized (see image).
What I have done as a place holder is make a mask with a stroke and animated that, dissolving into the rasterized images at the start and end points.
I would like to somehow keep the look of the line during the animation. Or at least make it look seamless.
