Sounds like a need for nitrogen and/or iron. When the veins are yellow it indicates the plant is not getting enough nitrogen. If you routinely feed your plants it may indicate the nutrients are bound up in the soil and not available to the plants. In this case, a little ironite should help. Good luck with your tomatoes!
