As Scott`s example code shows quite clearly, 150 IDs and their respective
lines on _one_ graph may not make for a clear picture. Alison may want to
spread them over several graphs...

Something like this:

clear
set obs 150
gen id = _n
expand 30
bys id: gen t = _n
gen group = (id<=75)
gen x = rnormal() if gr == 0
replace x = rnormal(4,1) if gr == 1
forv i = 1/150 {
	if `i' < 76 {
		local plotline1  "`plotline1' line x t if id == `i',
lc(black)  || "
	}
	else {
		local plotline2  "`plotline2' line x t if id == `i',
lc(blue) || "
	}
}
 twoway `plotline1' `plotline2' , legend(order(1 "Group 1" 76 "Group 2"))
