Currently remodeling my 100 year old Bohemian. We are reconfiguring the 1st floor bathroom and adding a separate toilet room which means that the old closet bend needs to be removed from its currently location. Attached is a picture that shows the existing piping which appears to be cast iron.

How would a plumber typically approach this removal? More than likely I will not be performing the work myself but I'd like to simply understand what options are available.

Thanks in advance,

Ayuh,... Cast iron pipe is easy to smash with a BFHammer to remove it,....

Bust it out, then replace/ reroute/ cap it off with pvc,....
Join the pvc to any iron still used with fencos,...
