For OpenTTD there is an in-game tutorial which will guide you through the interface. It covers about the same things as the beginner tutorial on the wiki, but is programmed as an interactive in-game tutorial. Follow the steps below on how to download and start the tutorial.
The in-game beginner tutorial contains these chapters:
- Trucks and industry chains
- Buses and town growth
- Rail (incomplete)

A previous attempt to create a in-game tutorial was TutorialAI that used the AI framework. This AI shows step by step instructions on how to eg. build a bus connection.
This tutorial works also with OpenTTD 1.1.x.
